Letter of Support for The Ranger Boulder
We, the undersigned, support the creation of a new “Ranger Boulder” at the Teton Boulder Park to commemorate the contributions of the Jenny Lake Climbing Rangers to Teton mountaineering.
The Jenny Lake Climbing Rangers have been an integral part of Teton mountaineering for nearly a century, saving countless lives and carrying out rescues that have affected both local and visiting climbers. As well, the advances in technique pioneered by these brave men and women have influenced mountain rescue around the world.
The current park, while rich in history, omits this seminal chapter of Teton mountaineering. The addition of a Ranger Boulder would honor the contributions of our Rangers while addressing the Park’s popularity in a way that continues to add to its value as a community asset.
We believe the Ranger Boulder would be a great addition to the Teton Boulder Park and to our community, and support Teton County & Jackson Parks and Recreation’s approval of this project.
